Soap left unused at Scenic Hotels is being sent to Ghana, as part of a global Soap Aid Scheme.
Scenic Hotel Group joined the scheme in late 2017 and has so far sent a pallet of unused soap from its Dunedin hotel.
Scenic plans on rolling out discarded soap collection across all of its 18 hotels.
The initiative redirects discarded and unused soaps from hotels. The soap is then re-processed, crushed and filtered. A heating and blending process creates ‘noodles’ of soap, ready to be recycled into new, hygienic soap bars. The soap is then distributed to targeted communities in need of hygiene aid.
